Hi Keith , only just caught up with your reply.

To be invited to compete at the KC's you have to win what they call a ticket which is a win at either a tracking dog championship or a patrol dog championship trial .
A bit like the IGL

Shadow had 1 reserve ticket and another one (which I count as a reserve) but was knocked out on a run off ( so really a third ) but had same mark as dog that was lieing in second . So we were very near but never quite made it . Unfortunately we are not able to get to all the champ trials so only had a small number of trials where we had a chance to qualify.

Little Herman is still a baby and at the bottom levels of trials , maybe in about 3 years we will be back up there who knows but he is so very different to work and at present I am struggling to read him when he is tracking ( failed again today but it was only his 2nd competition track and it was my fault :roll: ) .

Had the opportunity to watch this competition when it was held in the north several years ago and it is very interesting watching different breeds and handlers work .
